It has been one of my busiest weeks ever for cat-sitting. Many people share Thanksgiving (in Canada) with family and need to travel at this time. In many ways, it holds more anticipation and tradition than Christmas for some.
I have been running the roads caring for a total of 19 cats. That's not 19 homes, as some have more than one,but it makes for a lot of visits. I also stopped in to a fundraiser for local homeless animals and donated some food. There is no end to the need for help with these small rescues. They had precious kittens and a little dog sitting there waiting to be picked for a new loving home. They have many more in foster homes. Heart-breaking, I tell ya.
Cats are so funny and many have little routines that must never be toyed with.
I have kitty-clients who wait to be be brushed, some that love a back rub, two that anticipate hunting down treats as I head out the door. This fellow has to have 5 minutes with the faucet.
Twice a day he gets his water this way.
With his mask he's ready for Halloween.
"Oops, am I disturbing you?"
Are you enjoying all the pumpkin treats that are appearing everywhere?
These are pumpkin muffins with cream cheese icing that I picked up at our book-store/cafe this morning to enjoy with some pumpkin spice tea. May I just take this moment to sing the praises of Aisha, the baker-extraordinaire. "Amazing."
The retired-guy joined me today.
While Audrey counted leaves falling
we ate these...mmmmmm
The little bear is filled with organic local honey.
"Is that not a vision of beauty?"
Of course, Annie had to join us for tea.
Hope you are having a great weekend so far.
